    Watching the Patrick Mahomes injury in real time made me sick. Realizing that Andy Reid let him dislocate his knee on a QB sneak made me realize how much you need to protect a first round QB.Don’t let it happen again. The Chiefs Franchise will be regretting that play for years. Don’t care about the Murray vs others talk. Just protect Kyler

    Huh? Tom Brady and others seem to do just fine. That was completely a freak injury imo

    This week's update: Trends still going in the right direction.

    upload_2019-10-23_9-0-11.png

    The offense right now is 18th in DVOA and our team performance is being dragged down by bad defense and special teams (a blocked punt will do that to you).

    Also, according to DVOA, we've had 25th-hardest schedule (8th easiest) so far, and we have the fourth-hardest going forward.

    Through week 8, and the trends are reverting back toward the mean:

    upload_2019-10-31_9-11-31.png

    Cards now face the 2nd hardest schedule in the NFL going forward. Murray is 25th in DYAR, and 13th in QBR. In DYAR, he's situated between Mitchell Trubisky and Marcus Mariota.

    I'm going to truther these QBR stats for a second: What is a 13th ranking in QBR really showing? The stat weights for "clutch situations", which would (theoretically) provide extra credit for performance in tight games whether we win or lose. That said, Murray's 55.1 QBR basically puts him slightly above average, which maybe checks out.
